Such A Tease, Countdown Clocks Are Everywhere


imageCyberConnect2 kicked off the trend with a countdown clock leading to an announcement last Friday. Their timer goes off first sometime on January 16, Japan time. Perhaps this countdown clock will reveal a game that doesn’t have Naruto or .hack in the title. CyberConnect2 still has a mystery DS game in development which this clock could be related to.


image Marvelous’ countdown clock is more atmospheric. It has a floating clock with a colorful feather. Sometimes the clock reverses the direction of the arms. Their announcement is related to a new game. A smidgen of text in the HTML tells us this, but we still don’t know what Marvelous is working on. We’ll have to wait until Wednesday January 21 to find out.


Finally, Sega has a countdown clock leading up to announcement on Friday January 23. Their countdown clock lists Takao Miyoshi as the producer who previously worked on Phantasy Star Universe. Could this unannounced game be related to that? You can also scroll over on the mushroom to make it grow and shake.




What do you think these clocks are ticking down to?
